[PATCH] ARM: smp: Drop RCU_NONIDLE usage in cpu_die()

From: Stephen Boyd
Date: Mon May 20 2013 - 20:57:22 EST

Before f7b861b (arm: Use generic idle loop, 2013-03-21) ARM would
kill the CPU within the rcu idle section. Now that the
rcu_idle_enter()/exit() pair have been pushed lower down in the
idle loop this is no longer true and so using RCU_NONIDLE here is
no longer necessary and also harmful because RCU is not actually
idle at this point.
